will recognize each member for six minutes following the presentation by the witnesses fought secretary clinton was scheduled to be here today but we have had to reschedule if her parents do to the unfortunate injury for which we wish her a speedy and healthy recovery. she has a confirmed once again she has every intention of testifying before our committee by mid january as soon as she gets the go ahead from her doctor, so we will welcome the secretary to the committee in mid january. before i begin my opening statement, i would like to raise the case of a u.s. citizen john hammer, a proud marlene that served in iraq and afghanistan and was unjustly incarcerated in mexico. i am giving you gentlemen a bipartisan letter addressed to secretary clinton signed by close to 70 of my house colleagues asking for the administration immediate intervention with mexican authorities the accountability review board to the committee she noted in her accompanying letter that all of us have a responsibility to provide the men and women that served this country with the best possible security and support most of
and give the floor to admiral mullen. as secretary clinton said in her letter to congress, we accept each and every one of the board's recommendations and have already begun to implement them. in accordance with the law, secretary clinton ordered this review to determine exactly what happened in benghazi. that is how we can learn and improve. i want to convey our appreciation to ambassador pickering, admiral mullen and 13. -- their team. in the hours and days after the terrorist attacks, at the secretary's direction, which took immediate steps to protect people and our post. we launched a worldwide review of the overall security posture. interagency teams give particular scrutiny to high threat posed. the pentagon agreed to dispatch additional marines to post around the world. we asked congress for funds to hire new diplomatic security personnel. we're updating our diplomat procedures to increase the number of experienced and well- trained staffs serving at those posts. tom and i will be discussing all this work and more with congress tomorrow. for now, let me make one other point. i have
either gone or demoted. this is direct quote from spokeswoman victoria knew land. secretary clinton accepted eric boss equal's decision to resign as effective up immediately. the other three individuals have been relieved of their current duties. all four individuals have been placed on administrative leave pending further action. the "new york post" is reporting those folks are still on the state department payroll. eric boswell who they said resigned did not resign and all four will be back to work before too long. >> they just shifted the deck chairs and they want to make the american people believe that the state department has held people accountable for their lack of security and sending help to four brave americans. this is incredibly inept of the state department to think that it continue to fool the american public. pathetic. >> reporter: we've asked the state department about this and they have chosen so far not to clarify or deny any of it. keep in mind that right now, they're trying to transition from the clinton era to the kerry era. >> secretary clinton as you heard he
. >> reporter: kerry kept quiet and hillary clinton wasn't able to make it to the white house at all. she is still recovering from the concussion that is preventing from testifying about what she knew before after and during the deadly attack in benghazi. >> heather: peter doocy in washington, thanks. >> gregg: last of the newtown school shooting victims has been laid to rest. hour earns attended services for three children. eight days after the gunman killed 26 women and children. since then, more than $2.6 million worth of condolences have poured into the official memorial fund. >> heather: gun control debate heating up in the wake of the connecticut school shooting, national rifle association bribing go silence yesterday. critics slamming for suggesting them that armed police officers should be placed in every school in america. rick levanthol has a fair and balanced look at the argument. >> a number of viewers bill clinton made a similar proposal back in april of 2000 one year after the columbine shootings. pop warner football pledged $60 million in a fifth refund of founding for the
. he talked with c-span about his past investigations of the clinton investigation and the oversight role of congress. this is 30 minutes. >> how would you say the state is? >> it has changed a great deal. it is not the same as when i came 1983. there seemed to be more comedy. tip o'neill was speaker. i will never forget he was the first time he was on the floor raising cane with democrats. and he came down and started giving me the dickens. after that we became very good friends and played golf together. bob michael was a wonderful leader. there was a spirit of camaraderie even though we had differences politically then that we do not have now. now it is much more combative. i have a lot of friends on the democratic side of the aisle, very good friends. as far as working things out is not as easy as it used to be. >> what are some of the root causes? >> i think and i am not pointing fingers, when we went after jim wright, newt was the speaker and jim was forced out of office. they went after newt. the combat became very personal. that is one of the things that started this movement.
clinton. she's the only one that can answer a lot of these questions. and senator bob corker of tennessee put an interesting twist on this the other day when he said she should of it before there's a new secretary of state. so certainly john kerry, who is the chairman of the foreign relations committee, now has a pretty strong incentive i think to schedule something where secretary clinton can come up and answer the many, many questions, the growing number of questions about benghazi. >> we know how this works, okay? so first of all, there was concussion. obviously we wish mrs. clinton well. seems these recovering from that. she's now expected to testify. there was a tremendous amount of public disdain about this and outcry. the american people want answers, we have four dead americans in situations where there were multiple failures to provide adequate security, despite the questions, and now we have some resignations that really aren't amounting to anything. don't the american people deserve more answers as to why those four men on the screen lost their lives when they were pleading for
the clinton administration that carroll brander did not use e-mail. but we discovered, my colleague horner discovered that carroll brander did, wn the clinton administration left they destroyed hardwares that the e-mail was contained owe can't look back at shenanigans that cheryl branner was gettingp on the clinton administration. and now they are turning over approximately 12,000 e-mails to us. m: is that what precipitated her resignation, this is the common reason, i want to spend more time with my family. >> who knows, but it is no cosince -- coincidence she is up to her ears in scandal right now. tom. how widespread is this? other agents accused of using some sort of way to get around the law, federal records law, freedom. in could acts and other, government properties and government records so people can follow. >> yes, two house committees controlled by the republicans are now invesgating the richard windsor issue. i hope they will ask that question. how widespread is this illegal practice? who else has been doing it? let's see those records. there needs to be a wide spread investig
. george h.w. burks 137. bill clinton, 167. george w. bush, 173. and then president obama through november 5 2012, i guess the day of the election, had 311 -- 3 10789 why such a jump between president carter and president obama? is it just the cost of running these campaigns? is it television ads? writes all this money going if guest: it's a very good question. if you want to understand what presidents do, you have to think about what the rules of the system are that incentivize their action. so the rise in fundraising is really a story about the consequence of campaign reform. if you want to empty your let to a presidential candidate, you could give them $25,000. over the last few decades, campaign costs have exploded. the rational is that -- rationale is that we want to have small amount offense money to limit corruption or the appearance of corruption. so the idea is if i can only get a certain amount of money from you, and every person i know, i'm not going to be behold on every certain but with rising president costs, the president is spending more time raising more and more money. th
passed plan b before correcting the error 15 minutes later. hillary clinton did not testify this week the a congressional hearings on the benghazi attack because she's recovering from a concussion suffered after she had fainted. some fox news commentators practically demanded she get a note from her doctor. >> she's suffering from acute benghazi allergy which causes lightheadedness when she hears the word benghazi or is being asked about it. >> how could she get a concussion when she's been ducking everything. this is what i don't understand. makes no sense to me. >> hillary clinton, i guess she passed out somewhere. is she unconscious somewhere? >> bill -- >> she can't testify. >> really? they're making fun of the secretary of state's injury? this drew a rhetoric from greta van sus ren who blogged i don't agree with any of my fnc colleagues or anyone who is a tad bit sarcastic on our air about secretary clinton's health. she will testify next month. a story from last week, rhonda lee lost her job because of facebook. she was a meteorologist at abc affiliate in shreveport, louisiana.
and make sure it never happens again. there were recommendations that were made, and secretary clinton accepts all of them. we have to make sure that our diplomats or in places all around the world -- some of the places are very dangerous -- that they are protected. and congress has to do its part. i am troubled that the house has consistently low balled the monies for diplomatic security around the world and is constantly lowball anything to do with diplomacy around the world. moneys that have come out after negotiations between house and senate -- usually the senate had a higher amount of money. but the money that was agreed upon for both was much lower than had been requested. that is troubling. if congress is going to point the finger, we need to put our money where our mouth is. we need to make sure that our men and women who are in harm's also way all around the world to do such wonderful jobs, that we're protecting them and not doing this on the cheap. >> as we learned in the hearings and report, requests for more security could have been funded within the existing budget and we
system for decades upon decades. when he saw through the end of the clinton administration is sort of dismantling a lot of those protections. and as a result, you saw an increase of risk in the financial sector, and these explosions, these monstrous frankenstein banks. those that are so big that the failure of anyone which has been deemed to bring down the entire financial system. we saw this enormous crisis. so i do think that washington has played a role with deregulation. also just bad regulation. by being too overly deferential with financial institutions, looking the other way, really egregious misconduct that led to the crisis that had created this giant housing bubble of the exploded so painfully. i think the regulators do certainly share the burden of blame along with the financial institutions of the. >> "bailout" by neil barofsky is a bestseller. we have a caller on the line. please go ahead for your question for neil barofsky. >> caller: yes, i want to thank you for writing this book. it has opened my eyes to exactly what happened. i remember when they were voting on thi
hillary clinton finally expected to return to work next week. she spent the last three weeks recovering from a stomach virus and concussion that forced her to miss her date to testify in the benghazi attack that killed four americans in september. lawmakers say until hillary clinton testifies, they'll hold up john kerry has confirmation for secretary of state. >> eric: joining us now is sout carolina congressman and member of the house foreign affairs committee, mr. jeff duncan. good to have you on. first of all, why haven't we heard from hillary clinton? i understand concussions. i know them all too well. but really? three, four weeks now to testify? >> well, she needs to testify and i think she will. i'm optimistic she will. her office verified she was ill. i know the travel schedule, she gets worn down. i'll give her the benefit of the doubt. she needs to come testify. she was the person in charge at the department of state on september 11 when the attack in benghazi happened. and there are questions that need to be answered. >> kelly: there have been some people who criticize
they refer to as systemic failures in the very department that is headed by hillary clinton. apparently the state department and, you read through this report, they were utterly clueless about the threats and dangers in libya. how much plame rests on the shoulders of hillary clinton? what do you want to hear from her when she finally testifies? >> well of course the blame is on the libyan terrorists and we don't want to minimize that but when it comes to the things we can control, our own government i think the state department and the obama administration as a whole must be made accountable. this was a terrorist attack that where four americans diplomats were murdered. gregg: should she want to know, should she have been involved in security? >> not only should she have known, i want to know why in the seven hours that this firefight took place why did this accountability review board not even interview hillary clinton? she was just presented with the report. at no time was she interviewed. gregg: yeah. >> what did she do during those seven hours? where was president obama during those
department did this go? did it reach the 7th floor of the state department, ie, hillary clinton's office. we don't know that. >> dave: and that's why people want to hear from secretary of state hillary clinton, and hopefully recover from the concussion, from the flu to give the answers. there were four americans who died. >> clayton: great point. >> we have other news for you, get to it, if you're just waking up, after a second round of voting it looks like egypt now has a new constitution. you can see supporters of president mohammed morsi casting ballots for the islamic drafted confusion and reports that the constitution had passed and morsi says it's establishing democracy in egypt, but the some say it's nothing more than a power grab. is a serial killer on the loose in michigan this morning, concerns after police made another gruesome discovery in a drain pipe. this is the second time in four months that they have found human remains there. police have now sent the remains to a lab in texas for dna testing and investigators want to determine if the remains match the body parts months ago
in another three years with another crisis in the vrsc. the secretary clinton, ambassador riesch, undersecretary for political affairs and ambassador windy sherman high and -- and i have all met with an spoken with the rwandan and rwanda and officials in the past few weeks for a rapid and peaceful resolution to the crisis. i have travelled to the region just last month with my british and french counterparts to press the condoleezza, rwanda in, and ugandan governments to work together and start the crisis and address the causes of instability. and all three governments reiterated to us their shared goals -- their share gold -- shared goals. all three indicated to was that the most abusive commanders are now under targeted sanctions and we have placed those same individuals under u.s. sanctions. talks between the garcia government and the environment -- m 23 began on december 29 in uganda and are being mediated with uganda as the chair on the international conference of the great lakes region known as the i c g lra. as the two sides begin substantive con -- talks, the current ceas
she gave a speech and you can take away a thing or two and you can take away the hillary clinton name and just look at the text. the speech she gave on the development assistance was one of the most accurate scene on the topic of the international development. what did she say? a couple things that no one ever says that everybody knows to be true. number one objective, -- chu listed three but it's the most significant. the development assistance is not in the business of self propagation. it should be a time line of when does it end, when we stop, when do believe in haiti and pakistan and anywhere else in the world. timeline to zero. vitally important, she said that. she said getting directly back to your question she talked about corruption as an obstacle to the development. but she titled directly between corruption and poor countries and corruption in the united states inside the beltway contracts that are fed back and she talks about the development. we can talk about a lot of other systems, and tying the line that we are also a part of the world subject to the same kind of f
is to the middle class and lower middle class people. so, if everybody says let's go back to the clinton tax rates, that is the clinton tax rates. also, on more spending, the iraq war, we pulled the people out. on c-span about two months ago i turned it on a senate armed services committee. i've not seen any by a report on this. the. -- the state department said in private contractors at a cost it at or > if we would've sent our troops in there. it is a fact right now, the figures don't lie, but liars figure. host: thanks for the call. guest: the president's proposal to roll back the bush tax rates for upper-income americans would raise probably about $100 billion a year. that includes higher tax rates on itincome earned over $250,00, higher estate taxes, and more. it's not going to solve our deficit problem, but it will have an impact. the question is, is that enough, too much, too little, when you combine it with spending cuts, to reduce the deficit to more stable level over the years? host: what we have seen in these negotiations between the principals, how does that portend in terms of what we
administration the deficit was $167 billion. now is 167 -- >> compare the clinton administration with tax rates, much more robust private sector. stuart: can we get america back away and not to be? >> that is -- [talking over each other] stuart: out of time. tax deduction for charitable donations end or restricted. will rich people stop giving or is the government trying to become the go to charity of choice? yes they are. it is on its way with that. we will discuss it in a moment. i got to keep going. i was out of breath all i stopped. we don't have a commercial break and now we have this. more outrage. russia bans adoptions by americans. not only is vladimir putin denying four russian children the chance of a better life in america but insulting the u.s. and the obama administration. three years ago hillary clinton presented the russian foreign minister with a reset button. how did that relationship work out? who could forget president obama, he would have more flexibility in the second term. what a disaster. liz: latest in a long string of a fronts. door and the being treated as political po

't. isn't it time hillary clinton and obama man up and get in front of the congressional microphone? for the four dead americans. where the heck is hill? jimenez is sad. because they try to act like the people were dismissed. lost their job. accountability. the people responsible have blood on their hands of four americans serving their country, begged for resources. outrageous. this is so obvious, they have been exposed and we can't get the answers from the one person who can tell us what transpired. record of that everything happened that day. when she knew. >> eric: she has a concussion. headache. this is ridiculous. the state department, changing facts, changing talking point points. the "new york times" are out at the state department. >> bob: you never take their headline for anything but. this they said they would be ousted from the jobs they held. they were. that didn't say they'd be fired from the state department. >> kimberly: that is a joke. book why? >> kimberly: you think it's sufficient? >> eric: eric boswell, assistant secretary of state. for security resigned. >> kim

clinton, we'll never know whether she could be a consequential great secretary of state because the presidential essentially dominates. he does not delegate. and the reality is both at state and defense, the interesting question will be it seems to me on whether or not in the second term the president will allow his national security team to actually help shape the policy that the president validates and authorizes. >> that is a very interesting point. i had not heard that before. i have heard other things that make me think differently about the independence of state in this administration, but one of the things i think is also at stake in the haguele discussion is the kind of amazing enduring power of neo conservativism in washington d.c. long, long, long after it should have been really definitively discredited as a conception of the world. it is remarkable, the washington post editorial board, a key sounding board to this world view, is going after hagel, again, going after hagel in ways to make me like chuck hagel who i did not have strong feelings about prior to going afte
ourselves back here in three years facing yet another crisis in the eastern drc. secretary clinton, ambassador rice, undersecretary for political affairs ambassador wendy sherman and i have all spoken or met with senior congleeze rue wanden, you ganden, and u.n. officials in the past weeks and months to advocate for a peaceful end to the crisis. i have traveled to the region just last month with my british and french counter parts to press the governments to work together to stop the crisis and to address the underlying causes of instability. all three governments reiterated to us their commitment to these shared goals. in the u.n. security council we have taken action to ensure that five of the most senior m-23's most abusive commanders are now under targeted sanctions and we have placed those same individuals under u.s. sanctions. talks between the drc government and the m-23 began on december 9 in ugenda and are mediated as the chair of the international conference on the great lake regions known as the icglr. while the two sides have yet to begin substantive talks the current c
presidents, president clinton, bush and obama said that nuclear iran is unacceptable. if the iranians are allowed to walk across that threshold with no opposition, that would demonstrat demonstrates other would-be regimes that-- >> is this the year for the showdown on iran? >> simply as a matter of industrial mechanics, how much uranium you need to enrich to get to a bomb this is the year. >> paul: we've been saying that for a while and somehow there's a computer virus that happens that keeps kicking it down. but it's not an ever receding horizon and the international atomic energy looks at iran as nuclear some piles, how much they have and how deeply -- look, you saw benjamin netanyahu at the u.n. in september draw literally a red line and they've come to consensus grew late in the spring of 2013 you're going to have that threshold. >> paul: matt, you've been the optimist in our group on the arab spring and made a strong case for it particularly after the dictatorships for so many decades in that part of the world. give us some reason to think that this could turn out better than it
to president bill clinton, fox news contributor. terry holt joins us, former bush-cheney national spokesman and former senior advisor to the rnc. good to see you both. doug, what is amazing to a lot of people is that they're not even talking to each other. the last meaningful conversation between the president and boehner, for example, was 10 days ago. look, when you were in the clinton white house that's not the way things worked, right? >> absolutely not, gregg. president clinton and newt gingrich, the then speaker, despite their very real differences were talking all the time. i think at one point they spent a total of almost 35 hours in total together. bottom line, there was always a sense of national purpose that i think is missing here, gregg. bottom line on both side i think there's a lot to be accounted for. gregg: you know, terry, let me put up on the board what this means to the average american. all right. 300 bucks if you're the lowest taxpayer, there you are but you're talking about if you make 40 to 50,000, $1700. go to the next page. look at this. i mean you're talking about
and lower middle class people. so, if everybody says let's go back to the clinton tax rates, that is the clinton tax rates. also, on more spending, the iraq war, we pulled the people out. on c-span about two months ago i turned it on a senate armed services committee. one not seen anybody report this. the state department sent in private contractors at a cost greater than if we would've had our troops in there. it is a fact right now, the figures don't lie, but liars figure. host: thanks for the call. guest: the president's proposal to roll back the bush tax rates for upper-income americans would raise probably about $100 billion a year. that includes higher tax rates on income earned over $250,000, higher estate taxes, and more. it's not going to solve our deficit problem, but it will have an impact. the question is, is that enough, too much, too little, when you combine it with spending cuts, to reduce the deficit to more stable level over the years? host: what we have seen in these negotiations between the principals, how does that portend in terms of what we will see in
clinton said she turned to the mushrooms to boost her immune system. >> welsh once i was diagnosed, i kind of just shut everything down. >> when they with ingested into the body, they stimulate immune cells that line the intestines and then those stimulate other immune cells all over the body. >> and lisa says so far that treatment is boosting her immune system and her outlook on life as well. venlths champagne toasts on new year's eve could leave you feeling crummy the next morning. don't start 2013 with a headache. we have some tips to help you prevent that dreaded new year's day hangover. >> the reason why we have hang joefs is because our body is having a hard time dealing with all of the toxins from the alcohol. >> the guide to life author said before a party, eat a hearty meal, drink lots of party. >> asparagus has also been shown to help break down alcohol faster. it will help minimize if not completely make your hang joef nonexistent. >> if you didn't plan ahead, sip on some fruit juice if you wake up feeling sick. >> fruit juice is filled with fructose. it helps to minimize the ha
clinton knew you had to cut capital gains taxes to stimulate capital formation and investment that grew the economy in the '90s, pretty robustly, i think democrats would agree. so there is a whole set of things that have to be done in order to keep this economy out of dipping back into a recession which is why we have missed the real conversation set very well by democrats and republicans on the bipartisan debt commission. for every one dollar in increased revenue, we need four dollars in spending cuts. the president has failed to meet that level. >> you had a bill on the floor of the house, and boehner failed to get that pushed through. what happened there? >> that was -- boehner's leadership, without a doubt, i think, took a huge hit with that one, but that still represents one-tenth of the problem. where's the president's leadership on spending? >> that represents the entire problem. >> really? not according to the bipartisan debt commission. revenues represent the entire problem. >> this is the speaker of the house that can't do his job, that's what that represents, and he can't lea
voting rights act. president clinton johnson told dr. king in so many words, we don't have the votes in the congress to get it out of my sight pass. dr. martin luther king junior came back to atlanta, but with a group of us. my organization was already involved. and selma, the harder the bite. the only time a person could even attempt to register to vote for the first and third mondays of each month. you had to go up a set of steps through double doors and get a copy of the so-called leaders attack. and very few people were able to pass that. a few days, late february 1963, 1965, and there is a protest in marion, alabama 35 miles from selma. marion, alabama is the hometown of martin luther king jr. an incident occurred. a young man or the name of jamel jackson tried to protect his mother by a state trooper in a few days later he died at a local hospital and selma. because of what happened to him, we decided to march from selma to montgomery. since sunday, march 7, 1965 to about this time of day, 600 of us participated in nonviolent workshop. we line up in twos to a 50 master and selm
with me. there was hatred. but i'm not alone in that. you can take the last three presidents, clinton, bush, obama and people haven't just disagreed with them, they've hated them. to me, that's really terrible. that's a cancer that's eating at our politics. >> rick: he also said that even with the last three presidents being worse than he's ever seen, the last two years have been absolutely the worse that there has been an amount of inability to work together and compromise and it's completely stopping our system from making progress. >> clayton: he's been praised by republicans and democrats, but also vilified by both republicans and democrats, thinking he's grand standing and an opportunist. i read his book called "in praise of public service." i love to read all the politicians books when they came out. he believed that no -- >> gretchen: i liked that -- >> clayton: it was a thin back. i could get through in a flight with big type and wide margins. he talked about -- he didn't think we needed any sort of caps or term limits. he believed that we should have it open ended. >> gretche
